If you took it out you might not have put it in right the small round white piece with the little thing sticking out of it needs to facing up and the red thing that spins sits on top of the white pin, if it is in right then

Replace your belts and if that doesn't fix it then the heater block is clogged and you will need to take it down to your local repair shop and have them fix it.

Bissell proheat cleanshot 2x won't stop putting out cleaner and water, the little dial won't stop spinning

First clean the Flow Indicator filter. Turn the Flow indicator cap counter-clockwise to remove it. Lift the rotor and the filter under it out. Clean the filter and reinstall in reverse order. Make sure you have unplugged the unit before working on it. Then clean the lint filter on the heat tank cap (it looks like a screen) and reinstall it. There's not much more to these so if that doesn't work call the Bissell Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691

Flow indicator not spining

Yes I also had this problem after just one use. There's several things that you should check. 1. pull side panel off where the belt is located and see if the liquid in the clear tubbing is flowing.I there is a bubble in the line the pump has lost it's prime and needs to be turned off for a minute then restarted. 2. make sure the belt is not broken this drives the solution pump and well as the cleaning wheel. 3. the lines that the solution flow though are clogged. always rinse the machine with water when done cleaning. Good luck.

No Spray from Bissell 7920 ProHeat Pro-Tech s/n 01222111

When you put the cover back on, was the piston on the bottom of the smart mix knob? If it was, did you have the smart mix knob in the water only setting? Sometimes the flow indicator cap may be on too tight, loosen it while it is running until fluid starts to leak out, then tighten it until it starts spinning. On the bottom of the tanks, are the seals on the tank and not sitting the the hole. You may have pinched a line when you put the top cover back on. May still have junk in the lines somewhere, try running a mix of vineager and water (not on the carpet), that mix may clean it out.

Air flow indicator stays activated after filter has been cleaned. Brush spins, but very little suction. Dirt doesn't spin in cup.

Your vacuum is clogged. Check all of the air pathways, hoses, etc. The most common places to check are anywhere there's a joint in the airways, and also directly behind the brushroll.
